The Panzerkampfwagen I was a light tank developed in Germany in the run-up to WWII. Abbreviated Pz. Kpfw. I, the tank was officially designated Sd.Kfz.101. 

As Germany was restricted by the Treaty of Versailles in its military capability, the first tank prototypes were produced under the code name Landwirtschaftlicher Schlepper which meant 'Agricultural Tractor'. The prototypes were armed with two 7.92 mm MG 13 machine guns and were used as training vehicles by German armed troops. 

The Ausf. A was the first combat vehicle of the Panzer I series. Its thin armour and suspension problems resulted in weak performance on the battlefield. However, the improved versions were in military service during all German campaigns between 1939 and 1941 including the Invasion of Poland and the Battle of France.

Although the Panzer I models were of little use against even the lightest tanks of that era, they contributed significantly to the development of German military production.
